"The dark is light enough." Christopher Fry, English playwrightI was glad to see something by Christopher Fry. His isn't a name you hear very much these days.
I used to use a speech from The Lady's Not for Burning, for which I have a special fondness, as an audition speech.
Today's quote is the title of a different play. My mind's ear hears it spoken brusquely, with a grim satisfaction that proves the speaker to have a Stiff Upper Lip. For some reason, it reminds me of Stevie Smith's casual allusion to the alternative to carrying on: "Things may easily become more than I choose to bear."
